Fredericksburg, VA, April 11, 2018– Hundreds of moms will be spending Mother’s Day beside their sick children in hospitals across Richmond this year. Your ‘PER is working with A Mother’s Keeper, a local non-profit, to bring smiles and extra encouragement through gift bags and care packages that will be hand delivered to them in local hospitals on Mother’s Day. For some, this will be their first Mother’s Day.
“It’s tough to be a mom when you’re caring for your hospitalized child, but it’s even harder on Mother’s Day. When the rest of the community is celebrating with cards, flowers, and brunch, ‘hospital moms’ are feeling forgotten. They spend all their time caring for their sick child. We want to love on those moms this Mother’s Day and let them know they are not forgotten.” said Dayna Cobb, Founder of A Mother’s Keeper.
Last year Your ‘PER and A Mother’s Keeper were able to triple the original goal and deliver 128 gift bags to 6 Richmond hospitals. This Mother’s Day they hope to deliver 500 bags to 9 hospitals in both Richmond and Fredericksburg with the help of the community.
